completely irrelevant. governor romney has chang his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who hall say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that.wh so it's hard to know, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the ances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running anr president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example o what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected presint. that's an important issue distinctiont coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor ct romney was

governor romney sparred about in their presidential campaign debates. and tonight's commentator says there's an entire group of students that have been short- changed. he's todd buccholz, author of "rush: why you need and love the rat race." >> our schools have cheated and discriminated against a generation of students. when i was in high school, they divided us into two tracks. the college prep kids read "beowulf" and "macbeth"; the other kids were shunted into so- called vocational education, where they learned how to build a house, change spark plugs, and wire air conditioners. of course now, most us college kids can't ev u explainn how a toaster works. so where was the cheating and discrimination? those vocational kids weren't taught enough. they should've been taught, not just how to build and fix things, but how to run a business. if you've been trained as a plumber and can snake a pipe, you might be able to make ends meet for your family. but if you've also learned how to open your own plumbing business, you can prosper. if you can understand the computerized diagnostics
